Foster, CEO of the GEF. “Congratulations and welcome 888 The New World to our #worldconnected. We are excited to shape this innovative new chapter, together.”


“In my eyes, art can take many forms and expressions far beyond visual experiences that we are today associate with art. In our new world, I also see art as music and gaming,” said 888. “We are honored to partner with the Global Esports Federation as the first step in celebrating the creativity, professionalism, skill, and pure talent that can be appreciated through the art, culture, and innovation of the esports community. We embrace the GEF’s commitments to fostering a digital future of inclusivity and legitimacy, which aligns with the core ethos of 888 The New World.”

This partnership is a massive opportunity to shape a digital future that is diverse, equitable, innovative, and community-driven.
